London Afloat

Living on a boat in the heart of London. A landscape where the boundaries between urban and rural are blurred, populated by people who live out of conventional society. Rich people live on the river Thames, while on the Regent’s canal you find those who can’t afford a flat. Only one thing unites them: the love for nature and freedom. Everything else divides them. Observing them everyday in their habits, getting to know them, and finally describing them with a documentary that is the portrait of an unusual London and of an increasingly popular lifestyle.
